Good morning, thank you for joining me on Savvy Spoons.
This is your host, Misty.
I wanted to talk today about whining.
It’s an art we’ve perfected here in the United States of America. It’s almost like you give some people a handful of inalienable rights and they stop learning about them and starting whining about what they think they mean without ever educating themselves as to what they actually mean and don’t mean.
Let’s uh… Let’s give you an example.
Our lovely Representative from Colorado, Boebert, whined on Facebook about Freedom of Speech being limited because Facebook won’t let Donald Trump back on.
He violated a terms of service agreement and while I understand Mark Zuckerburg is pretty powerful last time I checked he’s not the United States government.
Which is where our Freedom of Speech rights stop.
We don’t actually have the right to enforce our Freedom of Speech on private entities, in fact, the Republicans made sure of that in the gay wedding cake fiasco that they keep forgetting which is why they now get to eat their cake too. See it turns out that there was a couple, a gay couple, who wanted to get married and they wanted to have their cake made by this lovely bakery that decided that they didn’t want to support gay marriage by making a wedding cake. They got sued for discrimination and the Republicans went wild because you shouldn’t be forced to bake a cake for a union you don’t believe in.
Deep Southern Accent: That is unconstitutional, that is unAmerican.
Because we don’t do that here in America, we don’t force people to make things that are against their religious beliefs or violate their freedom of speech we permit discrimination in public accommodations, or at least we’ve started to.
You know, if goes back to the whole “I’m a pharmacist and even though I hold the medical health and care of my community members in my hands I can choose not to fill RU486 prescriptions.” You know, that kind of bullcrap.
Anyway, in my own lovely home State; Masterpiece Cake Shop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, was the case in which the Supreme Court of the United States said that you don’t have to bake a cake for a gay couple if you don’t want to so; Congratulations Republicans it is because of YOUR hard fought efforts that Facebook gets to keep Trump off of it because it turns out you don’t have to suborn the bullshit lies of the ex-president of the United States of American just because he has free speech.
Mmm hmmm. Yeah. There’s your cake.
Thank you for popping in today for this short but sweet episode. I promise you more in the future, I just had to get that off my chest.
